    Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    For the K-state game I'm in charge of getting together a breakfast/brunch tailgate for the family, ages 9-70. Other than Breakfast burrito's and bloody mary's what are some other ideas. I will have a grill I can cook on and I'm thinking of buying a griddle surface for half of it.

    So please share with me your go to tailgate foods for these early games.

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    Thanks in advance

    ~Jim

    It's kind of the easy way out, but I have preordered a few Casey's breakfast pizzas and picked them up on the way to the stadium. I like the breakfast burrito idea too!

    Pre cook bacon, sausage, ham. Pre cut mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes, etc. Put in individual containers. Bring 3 or so skillets that will work on the grill and let people make their own omeletts.

    Steak and eggs is also a good choice.

    Hot cakes always kill it at a tailgate! I usually don't cheap out and buy the fancy maple syrup, too. So much goodness to get me (and the fam') going for the game!

    Re: Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    My wife always pre-cooks homemade sausage mcmuffins with eggs...makes them the night before, throws them in the oven or on the grill wrapped in foil for a few minutes and they melt in your mouth...

    I have been known to roll 3 or 4 of them if there aren't enough takers! She makes them for me and golf buddies whenever we have an outing also...

    Modification on this: crack a couple eggs into a ziploc baggie and add other ingredients (onions, bacon, etc...). Seal ziploc baggie and place in boiling water (can boil in a pot on your grill) for a few minutes. Result is a "walking omlet" akin to a walking taco. Ingredients are fully-customizeable and there's practically no cleanup required.

    Another way to make omelets is to bring a pot to boil water in. Take a plastic zip-lock sandwich bag and put 2 eggs and everything else you want in your omelet in it. Drop it in the boiling water and about 3-5 min later you have an omelet. Use a carton of egg whites for people watching their cholesterol.

    Couple drink ideas that have gone over well at my tailgates:

    Champagne and Orange Juice (Sparkling jucie for those not old enough)
    Hot Chocolate and Schnapps or RumChata

    The latest and greatest

    BananaChata

    Ingredients
    2 parts RumChata
    1 part banana liqueur
    1 part caramel vodka
    Banana slices

    Directions
    Shake with ice and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a banana slice caramelized with RumChata and brown sugar.

    Re: Breakfast/Brunch tailgate ideas

    We have always had a tradition of ordering Casey's breakfast pizza. It is easy, cheap and good. I highly recommend having them cut it into party squares. It makes the pizza go so much further because of it being smaller in size. There is usually between 5 to 8 of us and 2 larges are more than enough to have it for 2 days.
